Project Twin Streams - Working Together for Healthy Streams
Project Twin Streams is a West Auckland environmental restoration project which works with communities to restore the streams in their local neighbourhoods.
Currently there are five local catchment areas supported by four community organisations.
Project Twin Streams is also supported by local iwi Te Kawerau a Maki and Ngati Whatua, Auckland Council, Waicare and Manaaki Whenua Landcare.
Incorporating and celebrating the traditional deigns and motifs of the local communities, Te Herenga Tangata is PTS's largest art project to date.
A 10-metre-long eel sculpture made from recycled materials and mosaic tiles created by local community groups sits beside Opanuku Stream in Henderson.
West Auckland schools spread the environmental message of Project Twin Streams through murals.
Students worked with Te Kawerau a Maki carver, Sunnah Thompson , to turn an old burnt-out stump into a colourful identity marker on Henderson Creek.
